This elegant cigar bar boasts a 400-square-foot humidor, fashioned after an English tobacco shoppe for dignified gentlemen, smartly trimmed in unfinished cedar and mahogany. With a selection of 90-plus single malt scotches, over 150 whiskeys, an extensive wine list and a stellar offering of hand-rolled cigars, Downing Street caters to connoisseurs, but the knowledgeable staff is also more than happy to make informed recommendations to novices. The super-charged, state-of-the-art air filtration system makes the pub user-friendly for non-smokers. Right on the edge of River Oaks, this bar is a refuge for many in the neighborhood who don’t want to get caught smoking at home or at the country club.
The humidor offers private storage lockers for a lucky and well-connected few—122, to be precise.
